silent sunday

a productive day

hey there campers

not been feeling the crafty love so not posted anything card related for awhile but here we go with a plethora of crafty goodness.

This yellow card was made with a yellow A4 card made into an A5 card base
the backing paper is from a Kit'n'Kraft paper collection that I got from WH Smith, the spotty sentiment is from Double Sprinkle of Kraft (polkadoodles CD ROM) as is the flower, the twine and sentiment banner are from a cheeky monkey card kit again from WH Smith the Get well soon sticker from a selection from Sharon Duncans website. was quite a simple card to make but took a while to get the matts right!

This card was made with an A3 purple piece of card folded in half from WH Smith, The backing papers are from a selection given to me, the toppers are from a local shop called Coopers, the rectangle sentiment is from Double Sprinkle of Kraft and the other is from Hunkydory.

straight forward A5 card blank matt and layers silver matt card, the flower embellishments and main sentiment are from Double Sprinkle of Kraft, the puffy stickers are from Poundland and the auntie sentiment is from Hunkdory, the hello sticker is from a selection from Sharon Duncan.

thats is for now making bunting for my nephews birthday and halloween so throwing myself into that!

Badge of honour!

Hey there arty campers!

I made this star shape badge for my nephew Harry, he fell down a branch on a tree and has badly damaged his leg! my mum asked me to make a badge with no specifics so i decided to do something a little different! the mummy image is from polkadoodles cd rom sundae of seasons as are the stars i've coloured them in with promarkers!

going to add some text once the saftey pin is secured with silicon gel (drying as i type) the text will be bubble letters decoupaged on and will read 'brave boy'!

hope you like as much as i loved making it!

playing with 'scrapbook max'

This is one of my first attempts at digital scrapbooking/crafting i used some free software called scrapbook max (i got it from the front of a mag)

quite pleased with the result once i have replaced the colour cartridge in my printer i'll print it out and add some additional elements i have a wire cirlcle i want to put on as a buckle with twine

hope you like as much as i loved creating it

my besties birthday card

Hey there Campers!

Sorry for the lack of blogging! Been emotionally YUK the last few weeks and my cards have been dire!

However, after a lovely chat with my very best, oldest and loveliest friend today I decided to remake her birthday card (her birthday was 2 weeks ago and I always prefer to give her card and pressies to her in person, bit difficult when she lives 500 miles away) so this is the result!

After the completely amazing genoristy of a tweeting buddy Dee, I have some amazing new stash to play with.

I used:
a matt gold 7x5 card blank
some distressed pink polka dot back paper
some olive green backing paper
girl stampie from sundae of seasons polkadoodles cd rom coloured with promarkers
(skin- blush and dusky pink
clothes and accessories - shale,khaki and spice with cinnamon
hair- buttercup and pastel yellow)
heart shaped stickers from stash
tea set stampies from sundae of seasons polkadoodles cd rom coloured with buttercup, pastel yellow and yellow promarkers
sentiment from sundae of seasons polkadoodles cd rom
accented with pink heart gems from stash
and finally (and not particulary loved but she will like it) suzy spelt in glittery alphabet stickers from stash

hope she likes it
